In line with the ‘Year of Tolerance’ initiative, Dubai-based Mercato mall hosted an iftar gathering for orphan kids from Al Maktoum Charitable Organisation (Sawaed Al -Khair) at Azkadenya restaurant in collaboration with RCG media.
The special event saw over 25 children, aged between 7-and-14 years, enjoy a delicious meal and have a fun evening together. Additionally, at the event Sheikha Fatima bint Hasher Dalmok Al Maktoum and Mercato offered gifts to the children.
“It is one of the greatest challenges for children to be without their parents and through this iftar event we wanted to show them that they still have a network of emotional and practical support and care. Our objective is to put a smile on the faces of those in need, to simply make them feel part of our society,” said Sheikha Fatima.
“It has been a pleasure to host such a memorable evening with the children at Mercato, it is our duty to give back to those in need and Mercato is proud to continue our partnership with Al Maktoum Charitable Organisation (Sawaed Al -Khair) in improving lives across the UAE,” added Nisreen Boustani, PR & corporate communications manager of Mercato and Town Centre Jumeirah.
